Bladder spasms and problems

I am two weeks and one day out. I haven'y had any spasms for several days but may be jinxing myself writing that. Mine were worse in the late afternoon and early evening whem I was tired. I started walking twice a day last weekend and in the early afternoon I just sit with my feet up. I think the rest helps calm them down.

Bladder spasms and problems

It is good to feel not alone in the same issues - know that I feel for everyone having the bladder issues. My TAH(and tubes, ovaries, cervix) was on April 3. The catheter came out on Friday. I just could not pee so it went in again Friday evening. I wanted to try to get it out again on Saturday. I struggled, but some had come out so they let me go home Saturday evening. Sunday morning I woke up in pure agony at 2:30 a.m. and never went back to sleep the rest of the day; I just tried to pee all day, a few sitting up naps throughout the day. At about 3:30 p.m. we decided to call the doctor and was advised to get the catheter back in. I had it in until this past Thursday. I did urinate some. Oh, a kind person from hyster sisters had advised me to call the doc when I posted on Sunday about my dilemma and I took her advice (Thank you!). I

It is now Saturday and it seems my life's mission is to pee! The doc put me on Cipro this past Monday. I started it on Tuesday. I believe I do have a UTI and I don't really know if the Cipro is helping. On Thursday the doc said I could try an OTC medicine to help the pain when urinating. The first evening it helped, but not too much since then. ( Luckily, with the help of a generic stool softner the bowels moved successfully and virtually painlessly. I wonder how long I can take them. I have taken them twice so far - like every other day.)

I have been able to pee, but I really don't know how empty I am. Everyone here says drink tons of water or juice. I have drank more, but part of me fears the terrible full bladder and not being able to relieve it. Shall I just push the liquids anyway? I do not want a catheter in again. I feel that is just a vicious cycle of more irritation and then trying to get over it. Sometimes I cannot tell where pain is coming from. I am sore as hell- just from any coughing or sneezing. I have the staples out now and the incision had been and is now feeling worse because of the burning feeling I had read about from other hyster sisters. I am going to try to use the swelly belly band today for the incision. I had been using it just for some support since I came home and it has been a big help! Worth the price so far and I haven't even 'chilled' it yet.

I have read that the bladder can become bruised because of the surgery. I guess I am needing a consensus that I should still 'drink a river' with the confidence I will be able to flush things out. It sux for me as I am not a big drinker of fluids. I know, not a good thing. I have always been that way. I feel like I have to force fluids upon myself.

All that being said I just want to sincerely thank everyone that contributes to this wonderful site. My doctor had recommended it and I am grateful to her for that! I do not post a lot , but I am here reading. There is SO much information here.

I thank all of you from my heart for your sharing and caring. I feel badly I cannot contribute to the site at this time, perhaps in the future. I had no short term disability so I am out of any pay for 5-6 weeks and the hospital wanted the whole 20% from my insurance up front! I also found I would not have gotten the short term disability because it was a pre-existing condition. How does any woman afford a hysterectomy!! I could never have done this without the help of my partner. I almost thought I would be canceling the surgery! First the $1000 deductible, then the hospital wanted $2000 up front. They settled for $500.
